Le Poesie e Prose scelte

 

The "Meridiano" dedicated to Andrea Zanzotto, great oracular voice of the Italian poetry of the twentieth century, includes his whole poetic work completed by about fifty pages of unpublished works that form the core of a new collection.
The section dedicated to prose comprehend not only the creative proses and the stories already published in Sull'Altopiano, but also an anthology of essays about poetry, never collected before in a volume, entitled Prospezioni e consuntivi, which testifies both the creativity of the poet and its commitment to contribute to the cultural debates of our time.
It's very remarkable also the extensive editorial work by Gian Mario Villalta and Stephen Dal Bianco, that, thanks also to the explanations of the author, allows the reader to enter into texts of great complexity.
